polka-dot wasp moth
Hi Bugman,
I found a polka-dot wasp moth caterpillars on my desert rose. Should I be concern? Also, I’ve attached a picture of a swallow tail taken outside my window.

Hi Joanna,
The caterpillars will eat the leaves and the leaves will grow back. Unless the plant is infested, we would leave the caterpillars. Your Giant Swallowtail is beautiful.
